Make your voice count ! Contribute to the Discussion : Adaptation Practices in Agriculture

TECA is a UN FAO's web platform where you can find practical information – agricultural technologies and good practices – to help small producers in the field.

The TECA Team kindly invites you to participate in the following discussion on “Adaptation Practices in Agriculture” with the objective to identify SUCCESSFUL FARMING PRACTICES contributing to CLIMATE ADAPTATION.

In collaboration with the Nationally Determined Contributions Partnership (NDC-P) for climate action, TECA has launched a discussion dedicated to adaptation practices around the world.

We encourage individual farmers, farmer organizations, extension services, NGOs, researchers and every individual interested in climate change adaptation to participate in these discussions and share your practices which have given positive results !

By participating in this discussion we aim at developing a summary with:

i) An inventory of successful practices, strategies or technologies used in agriculture sectors around the world

ii) Constraints for their application

iii) Suggested actions to ensure climate adaptation in your country

Additionally, you will help to collect key information for the NDC implementation.

With the outcomes of the discussion, FAO aims to enhance cooperation so that different countries and people have access to the technical knowledge and financial support they need to achieve ambitious climate and sustainable development targets as quickly and effectively as possible.

The discussion will last two weeks, starting on February 22ndending in March 11th, 2018 and will address the following questions:

1. What adaptation practices, strategies or technologies have you been using so far in your agriculture sectors?

​2. What has worked well and what hasn’t ? Briefly explain why. We are happy to see your experiences shared with us !

3. What is needed to ensure that these practices, strategies and technologies respond to the climate adaptation commitments in your country?

We are happy to introduce the experts that will be able to answer your questions and share their experiences with us:

  • Dorothée Merkl, Climate and Environment Division (CBC), FAO
  • Rebecka Ramstedt, Climate and Environment Division (CBC), FAO

All your contributions and interactive discussion are very appreciated !
